“Lonely Tweets” Reveals Who’s Lonely on Twitter (Everyone)

For people obsessed with sociology, Twitter is the unlikely platform of choice for social experimentation. Let’s see, there’s Sad Tweets, a website that displays your “saddest” tweets, The Lonely Project, a website that randomly generates sad tweets and gives you the option of replying with an optimistic “You’re not alone!” message that could be interpreted as sweet or a creepy invasion of privacy, and of course, @sosadtoday, a Twitter account that cynically chides our daily woes.

The latest site to join the list is Lonely Tweets, a site that generates the most recent tweets that include the words “I’m lonely.” The tweets are displayed over the tweeter’s enlarged profile pic, giving the whole site a slight artistic aesthetic. You have pictures of happy, smiling party girls with phrases like “I hate being alone” plastered on top of their faces. In a world full of “social media facade”–that thing we do when we promote a version of ourselves on social media that’s not really true–Lonely Tweets reveals the cracks in our disguises.
